Mallett LS2 Sky number 10 is a two-owner car with only 8,157 miles (13,127 kilometers) on the odometer. Coming courtesy of RK Motors Charlotte, the Sunburst Yellow-painted roadster carries an asking price of $39,900, and the sale includes copies of the purchase agreement, order form, and invoice.
Backed up by a clean history report from Carfax, the Corvette-powered Sky features performance-oriented shock absorbers, Corsa stainless-steel mufflers, a two-core aluminum radiator, polyurethane rear A-arm bushings and differential mount, aluminized carbon-fiber coilovers, Mallett body graphics and seat embroidery, a serialized plaque, and a few special badges.
The Auto Standard Package mentioned earlier includes a custom driveshaft, billet bell housing, as well as a beefier torque converter and flex plate because the 6.0-liter motor develops 400 pound-feet (542 Nm) of torque at 4,400 rpm. Rolling on 18-inch chromies wrapped in Goodyear Eagle rubber shoes, the car is pristine throughout, from the paint finish to the seating surfaces.
Roughly 3.9 inches (99-mm) longer than the Pontiac Solstice, the Saturn Sky with eight-cylinder oomph is a proper hoot in the driving department thanks to the sub-3,000-pound curb weight. For reference, the C6 Corvette tips the scales at 3,179 pounds (1,442 kilograms) while the mid-engined Corvette Stingray Coupe is pretty porky at 3,535 pounds (1,603 kilograms) including fluids.
If you were in the market for an open-air driving experience with a small-block soundtrack, would you spend your $40k on this Mallett-massaged Saturn or something more modern such as a second-hand C7 Corvette?
